French Taboo Speaking Game - Animals - Les Animaux

✮ French Taboo Game - Animals - Les Animaux ✮

Playing games and having fun is when learning really happens in French class. I love to play the game Taboo with my students. French Taboo is a game that is easy to modify and use with beginners and advanced students alike. This taboo speaking game is includes 75 cards about animals: pets, farm animals, wild animals, sea life, insects, etc. There is a set written in English and French and a set in French only. Great for immersion schools!

Object of the game

One player tries to get his teammate to guess the word at the top of a card. The player must give clues, but he can’t use any of the Taboo words in his description. The taboo words are written beneath the underlined word at the top of the card. Teams score points for each word successfully guessed. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins. The teams take turn guessing and verifying no Taboo words have been used. You can also play this game in pairs if everyone agrees not to cheat :-)

Beginner students should be allowed to use the French TABOO words printed on the cards. This will encourage them to use new vocabulary and will help them in forming sentences to use as clues.

You can also have your students study the vocabulary on the cards! While playing this game, your students will be working with 375 French words!
